Anti-Jewish sentiment unwelcome

I was stunned to read an apparent ad (not so identified) by A.H. Krieg, titled "Another French Fiasco," in your national weekly edition on May 15. I will not lend credence to this outrageous rant by quoting its incessant and unsupported insults to Jews. I read "Mein Kampf" when I studied German history at Yale many years ago, and this ad was a similar excuse for reasoned, intelligent writing that should never have gotten by any of your editors.

No sauce for the gander

"Do As I Say (Not As I Do)" carries the strength of religious doctrine in Washington, where the U.S. government and all its minions are dedicated to instructing everyone in flyover country in how to live their lives — or else. Someone could write a book. In fact, Peter Schweizer has. His book became a bestseller and even a movie.

Trump's no-apology tour

Donald Trump is the un-Obama. His predecessor set the tone for his presidency by making stops in the Middle East with head bowed in contrition for any and all offenses the United States had made, might have made, or could have made. The enemies of America were invited to fill in the blank. Barack Obama, mistaking humiliation for humility, promised to "lead from behind."

Who's the real criminal?

I would be remiss in doing my civic duty if I kept my mouth shut when I saw a terrible injustice. The Democrats have defamed, assaulted and slandered President Trump unmercifully since he took office.

Iran laughably rips Trump for spreading 'Iranophobia'

- The Washington Times

Iran, reacting to President Donald Trump's speech at the Arab Islamic American Summit in Riyadh, called out the commander-in-chief for his blunt rhetoric and accused him of harming Tehran's reputation in the Middle East. Consider this your Monday morning laugh. You're welcome.

Notre Dame snowflakes exit, stage right, for Mike Pence

- The Washington Times

Vice President Mike Pence's graduation ceremony speech at Notre Dame caused quite a few students -- offended students, apparently -- to exit, stage right, and leave the event. America, meet the graduating class of 2017 -- too weak to listen to countering views.
